Ogden man misses rescued Chihuahuas taken from home
He raised 149 before animal services took them from his home
OGDEN — An Ogden man says he misses 149 sick and starving Chihuahua dogs that were rescued from his home last month by shelter workers.
But Miguel Salgado acknowledges that even he's puzzled by how he let them take over his life to the point where he shut off his electricity and telephone service to pay for dog food.
Salgado, 60, told the Standard-Examiner that while he has always been a dog lover, things got out of control after he underwent open-heart surgery two years ago.
He took in strays, dogs given to him by neighbors and canines dumped over his fence by others.
Animal services officers and volunteers removed the Chihuahuas from his home last month and took them to four agencies. They'll be put up for adoption.
